Carl Randle, One Night - 3

Originally published May 20, 2014
Carl Randle didn't have a particularly great season at single-A Gastonia in 1990, but on one night, he was stellar.

On this night, May 19, Randle faced Greensboro. He threw a no-hitter.

Overall, Randle went 8-9, with a 4.19 ERA. He was in his third season in the minors. He would get just one more.

Randle's career began in 1988, taken by the Rangers in the 17th round of the draft out of Huston-Tillotson College in Texas.

Randle started at rookie Butte. In 19 outings, three starts, Randle went 4-2, with a 6.25 ERA.

He split 1989 between the rookie Gulf Coast League and single-A Gastonia. Between the two levels, he went 6-4, with a 2.32 ERA. In late-May, Randle went two innings of relief, giving up a single hit and no runs.

Randle returned to Gastonia for 1990, getting that no-hitter and that 4.19 ERA. For 1991, Randle moved to high-A Port Charlotte. There, he got 29 outings, 27 starts. He went 3-8, with a 3.89 ERA. It was his final year with the Rangers.

He's credited with returning three years later, at independent Lafayette. In 20 outings, six starts, he went 2-7, with a 4.09 ERA. It was his final year as a pro.
